1616 – William Gainye arrived on The George – On October 13 of 1626, Thomas Spelman, William Gainye, William English, and Frances Mason appeared in court in James City and were granted permission to “goe for England”. No reason for the visit is found. Mason and Gainye had family connections, Ganey had also arrived on The George in the 1616 (Dorman, p. ) with Thomas Spelman. Ganey petitioned Governor Wyatt in 1623 for wages and reimbursements owed to him by the deceased Captain Nuse, describing himself as an employee of Nuse who had paid the debts and wages to other employees since Nuse’s death, indicating he may have been an accountant for the Company Land at Elizabeth City. (Jefferson Papers, Vol. 4, p. 455-456) Ganey’s 200 acre land grant describes him as a mariner seated at the harbor of the Hampton River, near Spelman’s plantation. In various records, William Ganey is listed as arriving on the The George, The Bona Nova, and The Treasurer, which could indicate business travel. Records do not indicate that these men were with Spelman when he died shortly after arrival in County Cornwall, England.

1625 May 11: Beale and Leonards versus Rastell and Griffith. 128-124. Examination of Thomas Hamonds age 25 of Limehouse, Middlesex shows that he has known Henry Beale and Peter Leonarda for two years and Humphrey Rastell for 15 months, but does not know Pierce Griffiths. In answer to interrogatories Hamond says that Beale and Leonarda were reputed to be the owners of a ship called the UNITYE. Secondly he states that Beale and Leonards, chartered the UNITYE to Rastell and Griffiths who put on board merchandise. and passengers to be shipped to Virginia and other plantations. The Master was Tobias White. The ship left the Thames in April last, but as the year was already partly gone the Master was ordered to sail to New England instead of Virginia. In New England they landed some merchandise. Rastell hired a bark and put the passengers and their food on board and sailed to Virginia, ordering the UNITYE to await his return. After 3 months the Master of the UNITYE received orders to sail for Virginia. This was nearly the end of December and the Master knowing that he would meet with contrary winds, and because there were hardly any provisions left decided to return to England. Hamond goes on to say that while the ship was in New England no storms occurred and that another ship, name unknown, which was there at the same time – Master William Gayney – did sail to Virginia and arrived safely.
